Hello there and how about this for a fun Spring card? Thanks Ronah for helping out with these fun, but somewhat frustrating, flowers!  All of my cussing was worth it..hehe!

All Products:  Close to my Heart!

Peace & Luv,
 
The idea of this card came together in my mind better than it did on paper...so to speak.  I was thinking that it was kinda sad that I haven't done a card with any type of dragonfly lately, shame on me.  So I used a dragonfly rolling stamp from Stampin' Up and made my own background paper.  Then I just basically used a flower punch, and went to town.  It's just ok, not great, but I decided I'd post it anyway.  I do love the sentiment though!

Stamp:  Stampin' Up 
Digital Sentiment:  Create with TLC
Papers:  CTMH
Other stuff:  Flower punch,  ribbon and rhinestones.


Peace, Luv and Happy Friday Eve!
Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday #102!  Our sponsor this week, is our monthly sponsor that we love so dearly DigiStamp Boutique!  This darling little gal's name is Lizzie.  Isn't she sweet?  I've always liked this color from Stampin' Up, called Rich Razzleberry, and when I combined it with the More Mustard cardstock I thought it gave it a rich look that I thought she deserved.

The grand prize winner of this week's challenge will win 6 digital images of the winner's choice!

Be sure to look in on what the rest of the Design Team Diva's have created on the SSW Blog, and join us.  I can't wait to see what you can do with this sketch!

It's the weekend, and I hope you're taking some time to pamper yourself!  My inspiration for today's card came from Alice's Little Wonderland, and a post that she did on Friday.  She's got a great blog, and a lot of great ideas.  Thanks Alice!

Peace & Luv,
Hooray, blogger is working today!  I had actually planned on posting this yesterday and then blogger was down, so that was a bit frustrating.  Anyway, this is pretty simple, for me anyway.  It's made with some new Stampin' Up papers and stamps, all about sewing.  There's actually some gold glitter on the needles, but it's not showing up too well here.  It added a little bit of sparkle that I thought it needed!

Bobbin stamp and paper:  Stampin' Up
Kraft cardstock
Other stuff: Label nestie, ribbon, button, gold glitter pen.

Peace & Luv,

  Thank you so much!
This week our sponsor is Sassy Cheryl's!  I just love her images. They are so whimsical, detailed, and yet so fun to color, and this Ladybug Lady just captured my heart. Although mine was not pre-colored when I got it awhile ago, this image is now available that way as well as a stamp.

A sweet gal fluttering by, just sorry I couldn't get a good picture of it!  The ribbon is nowhere near that dark and the image is much brighter.  Oh well...c'est la vie...I knew I should have stayed away from my desk today...

A tisket, a tasket, Hambo Hoedown has a little basket this week, and the challenge is to use lace and flowers as well.  I enjoy their challenges a lot, and if you haven't checked them out yet, you should.  Because if you enter every week, then you get next weeks image free, and that's very cool.  This card is on it's way tomorrow to my ex-mother in law in Iowa (it's complicated).  She's the best, and I hope it makes it there on time!

Other challenges:
Just Add Ink:  Add a Flower
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays:  For Mom
